Low oil not indicating

I am not getting a low oil light when I am 2 quarts low. The car is a 91 420 sel. Where is the low oil sensor located? I have been all over the engine and have not seen it. I am familiar with the ones on a 86 300e 6 cylinder. Is it the same type? At what level would one expect to have the dash light come on? The light is good cuz it comes on when the ignition is switched on.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave

On my 1991 300E it was on the driver's side of the oil pan. I assume it was at the 1 liter low level so that when the probe was exposed to 'air' and not submerged in oil it would trip the low oil warning. So I'd start there.
